Rick Ross assassination attempt might have links to Gangster Disciples
Jan-30-2013 431 0


There is no shortage of suspects in Monday's assassination attempt on well-known rap star Rick Ross. And they all lead back to Chicago.

Ross survived a shooting ambush in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Monday morning.

The worst kept secret in the rap world has been a dispute between Ross and the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples. Ross was apparently targeted by gang leaders after he used some of their signs, symbols and logos without paying them the required fees.

Over the past few months, gang members have posted video death threats against the rapper on YouTube. Monday, a hit squad opened fire on Ross in South Florida.

There was a spray of gunfire just before daybreak on the silver Rolls Royce being driven by rapper Rick Ross, stage name for William L. Roberts.

"Nine or 10 shots, rapid fire," said a witness. "AK-47 or pretty large rifle, it was definitely a rifle."

Fort Lauderdale police tell the I-Team that they cannot confirm nor dismiss whether the allege threats to the rap star are legitimate but that detectives are examining the forensic evidence.

Despite all the bullets, rapper Ross, celebrating his 37th birthday Monday, was not hurt and neither was his girlfriend in the car, which crashed into an apartment.

Videos claiming to have been posted by Gangster Disciple members in cities across the U.S. all say that the rapper needs to pay the gang or he will be killed.

Authorities in South Florida say the motive for the attack is unclear.

Charges for assault and battery against the rapper, 45, have been dropped.

A spokesperson of the Los Angeles County district attorney's office announced no felony charges will be issued and instead the star's case has been moved to city court to decide if the dispute should be listed as a misdemeanor.

"We are thankful that the district attorney rejected felony charges in this matter," Diddy's attorney, Mark Geragos, told the LA Times. "This case never should have been part of the criminal justice system to begin with."

The mogul was originally arrested after he reportedly attacked the school's assistant football coach and an intern with a kettlebell during an incident after a football practice.
UCLA defensive back Justin Combs made a splash when he signed to play for UCLA.

The coach, Sal Alosi, allegedly rubbed Diddy the wrong way when he mocked his son by posting photos of him sitting courtside with his dad during football practice in the gym, then later kicking him off the field during a workout.

"While you guys were training, this guy is sitting courtside with his dad," he allegedly told the team.

When the rapper approached Alsoi later about his actions the reported fight began.

UCLA has not released a detailed statement of the incident although Diddy has continued to say that he acted out in self-defense.

Rick Ross, the famous rapper who is accused of assaulting two workers last month, was granted bond on Wednesday after making an unusual deal with a Fayette County judge.

Ross, whose real name is William Roberts, agreed to forfeit ownership of his $5 million Fayetteville property if he violates the conditions of his bond by intimidating a witness or obstructing justice, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Ross, 39, was arrested on June 24 after allegedly assaulting two service workers who reportedly threw a birthday party at the rapper’s 235-acre Fayetteville estate without his consent, according to Channel 2.

The incident allegedly occurred on June 4 at Ross’ suburban Atlanta home, formerly owned by boxer Evander Holyfield. He and his 42-year-old bodyguard, Nadrian James, are accused of taking two workers into the guest house on his property and attacking them, one of which Ross allegedly beat in the head and face with a Glock handgun. The man suffered extensive injuries, including two chipped teeth and a neck injury.

“The victim lost use of his jaw and is restricted to soft foods and liquid diet only as a result of not being able to chew food,” arrest warrants state.

Both Ross and James were charged with kidnapping and aggravated battery. Ross was additionally charged with aggravated assault and both men were booked into the county jail, where James will remain until Aug. 13 pending a hearing.

Ross bought the palatial estate formerly owned by Holyfield for $5.8 million in January 2014. The house — considered to be the largest single-family home in Georgia — has 109 rooms, a movie theater, an Olympic-size swimming pool and a separate 4,000-square-foot guest home.

The alleged assault was Ross’ second run-in with Fayette law enforcement since June 10, when he was arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge for five joints that police allegedly found in his car.

The founder of Maybach Music Group, Ross is perhaps best known for his 2006 single “Hustlin’.”

The 44-year-old hardcore hip-hop star and actor was taken into custody outside Radio City Music Hall in Midtown Friday night for failing to pay child support, the sources said.

Members of the New York City Sheriff’s Office slapped cuffs on the “Undisputed” rapper just before he was about to perform at the Master of Ceremony concert alongside Shabba Ranks and The Lox.

A team of sheriffs waited outside the historic music hall until he arrived so they could take him into custody, a police source said.

“As soon as he stepped out of his vehicle, they grabbed him and drove off with him,” the source said.

Several concert goers saw the interaction — and immediately told the Twitterverse about it.

“Just witnessed @DMX getting arrested, what the hell,” wrote Inny Gomez. “I saw guns getting pointed.”

DMX, born Earl Simmons, has a lengthy criminal record which fuels his tough “gangsta rapper” persona.

His litany of arrests include charges of animal cruelty, reckless driving, drug possession and probation violations.

In April, a 21-year-old man claimed DMX robbed him of $3,200 at a Newark gas station after the two started talking about music.

DMX has a dozen children with several different women and has been sued repeatedly for child support.

In 2013, he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, claiming that his many child support payments had become to much of a burden — but the claim was shot down in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan.

Last year, a judge ordered that $15,000 a month would be pulled from DMX’s wages at Universal Music Group and given to his ex-wife Tashera Simmons, who he fathered four children with.

Sean "Diddy" Combs was defending himself in an incident at the University of California, Los Angeles, that led to his arrest, a representative for the hip-hop mogul said Tuesday.

"The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate," Nathalie Moar, a rep for Combs, said in a statement to The Associated Press. "What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son."

Combs was arrested Monday for an alleged assault involving a weight-room kettlebell at the athletic facilities of UCLA, where his son plays football, a university statement said.

Combs, 45, was freed late Monday after posting bail, several hours after his afternoon arrest, jail records showed.

University police allege three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery, according to a UCLA statement.

"We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed," Moar said in the statement.

Officials did not say who was allegedly assaulted or what led to it. No one was seriously injured, police said.

The jail records show that Combs' bail was $160,000, but sheriff's officials reached by phone said he posted $50,000. The reason for the discrepancy wasn't clear.

Combs' son Justin Combs is a redshirt junior defensive back on the UCLA football team, which has been working out on campus. He has played in just a handful of games in his three years with the team.

The son of another major rap star also plays football for the Bruins. Snoop Dogg's son Cordell Broadus is a wide receiver who signed with the team this year.

Football coach Jim Mora thanked his staff for their professionalism in handling the situation.

"This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved," Mora said in the statement from campus police. "While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time."

The arrest, first reported by TMZ, is the latest of several allegations of violence by Sean Combs.

He was acquitted of bribery and weapons-related charges in connection with a 1999 shooting at a New York nightclub. A jury cleared him of firing a weapon during the dispute that wounded three bystanders, as well as bribing his chauffeur to take the rap.

Combs was arrested in 1999 for his involvement in the beating of former Interscope executive Steve Stoute in New York. Combs apologized, the charges were reduced, and he was ordered to attend an anger management class.

Combs and Stoute have since mended their relationship, appearing on stage together at Cannes in 2013.

Earlier this year, an Arizona man accused Combs of punching him in the face at a Super Bowl party. Combs was not arrested.

Jay Z's Tidal wave is quickly becoming a tsunami.

Peter Tonstad is the second CEO to leave the music streaming service since its launch in October, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Tonstad, who was on the job for just three months, was named interim CEO shortly after Tidal ditched its first CEO, Andy Chen, in April.

"We are thankful to Peter for stepping in as interim CEO and wish him the best for the future," a Tidal official told WSJ, which reported Tonstad was let go.

In a conflicting report, Tonstad said he quit.

"The only thing I can confirm is that I have resigned," he told Norwegian news site Dagens Naeringsliv, according to Gizmodo.com.

Although the streaming service had a quiet launch in October, it made headlines in March after a star-studded launch event #TIDALforALL in New York City. There it was announced that superstars like Madonna, Kanye West, Rihanna, and Jay's wife Beyoncé are among the A-list musicians who are co-owners of Tidal.

Alicia Keys, another co-owner, said the artists hope Tidal will "forever change the course of music history."

Despite reports the service is failing, Jay Z defended it in late April, claiming a "smear campaign" is underway by big companies spending millions to launch against Tidal.

"Tidal is doing just fine," he tweeted April 26. "We have over 770,000 subs. We have been in business less than one month. #TidalFacts"

That's nothing compared to Spotify's 60 million subscribers and the potential tidal wave Apple Music can bring when it launches on June 30.

Rick Ross was arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge in Fayette County on Wednesday.

Ross purchased the former Fayetteville home of Evander Holyfield last year.

Rapper Rick Ross was arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge Wednesday in Fayette County.

Ross, whose birth name is William Leonard Roberts II, was arrested after a deputy stopped his Bentley on Ga. 279 due to an alleged window tint violation, Fayette County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Allen Stevens told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The officer smelled marijuana before finding five joints inside the car, Stevens said.

Ross, 39, was booked into the Fayette County jail Wednesday afternoon.

The founder of Maybach Music Group, Ross is perhaps best known for his 2006 single “Hustlin’.” He was raised near Miami but purchased last year the Fayetteville mega-mansion that once belonged to boxing legend Evander Holyfield.

Wednesday’s run-in with Fayette deputies is at least Ross’s fourth marijuana-related arrest. He was arrested on pot charges in Miami in 2008, in Louisiana in 2011 and in North Carolina in 2013.

Rosetta Boyce Kyles, mother of St. Louis’ own King of Comedy Cedric The Entertainer, passed away this morning (June 1, 2015) after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Born and raised in southern Missouri, Ms. Kyles received her undergraduate degree in education from Lincoln University in Jefferson City and a Master’s of Arts in Education from Southeast Missouri State University.

She moved to the St. Louis area in the mid-1970s, where she would remain for the rest of her life.

In addition to raising her two children, Ms. Kyles was an educator who spent more than 30 years in the field before retiring as a highly regarded reading specialist.

Last October, her children Cedric and Sharita Kyles presented the Cedric and Friends Gala along with SSM to benefit the Rosetta Boyce Kyles Women’s Pavilion that will be housed at SSM St. Mary’s Health Center.

“Those of you who had the good fortune to meet Rosetta know that she was truly a remarkable woman, who although at times became physically weak during her illness, remained steadfast in her faith,” said Kate Becker, President, SSM St. Mary's Health Center. “We are grateful to her son, Cedric (the Entertainer) and daughter Sharita, who both have an unwavering passion towards our mission, evident through their dedication to the great success of the Cedric and Friends Gala, held last October to benefit the Rosetta Boyce Kyles Women’s Pavilion at SSM St. Mary’s Health Center.”

Ms. Kyles was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 and received treatment from SSM St. Mary’s. As part of the festivities she spoke of being especially connected to the mission of the hospital, which states “Through our exceptional healthcare services, we reveal the healing presence of God.”

Her son Cedric spoke of the exceptional healthcare she received when speaking with The American about the intention behind his inaugural gala featuring himself and Grammy Award winning soul singer and actress Jill Scott.

“When you have someone come into the Rosetta Boyce Kyles Center, not only are they going to get exceptional healthcare, but it’s going to be with the kind of spirit that is an extension of your family,” Cedric said.

“We, along with Cedric and his family are committed to continuing our efforts towards the Rosetta Boyce Kyles women’s pavilion at SSM St. Mary’s,” Becker said. “[Where we will be] providing health and wellness services to all women throughout our community in her memory.”

She is survived by her two children, five grandchildren as well as a host of family and friends.
